So, in other words, it's rare that I listen to this station, but I just happened to catch them playing Merle Haggard's song
'Okie From Muskogee' as a tribute to him, as it was his birthday, although in Australia we are a day ahead of the USA, so while it was April 6th over here, it was still only April 5th in Merle's part of the world.
I was surprised to hear this song on the radio, as I used to play it a lot and sing along to it as a teenager, even though I had long hair and The Beatles and Pink Floyd were my favourite bands at the time.
I hadn't heard this song for years until yesterday and when I heard it come on the radio I turned it up and started singing along with it puzzled to hear this song on the radio until the DJ said that was for Merle Haggard who turned 79 today.

I also remember that The Beach Boys sung 'Okie From Muskogee' at their Good Vibrations from Central Park concert in '71.
Weird also that I only just saw Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys play live for the first time in my life Easter Monday.

I also found it rather synchy that above the passage I boxed in red on that page from 'Sidewalk Oracles' above is the line,
"I'll take wings to fly with me for the rest of the day", as that reminds me of the spooky Nicole Kidman sync with her father and the writer of the song 'One-day I'll Fly Away' passing away on the same day.

Banana Boat song, and then I see the above scene from the movie last night.
